Oxford Demos web site gets boost

JUST ACROSS  from Mill Street  and the river Thames is the West Oxford Democrats Club – it has no affiliation with any political party. Some wizard has revamped the web site very recently.

A PDF here has some information about the Island of Frogs, as the locals call it. The  nearest bus stop is here.   

If you look closely at the picture on its web page, there is a very famous bench, that was moved, obliquely, and reported on previously in the Oxford News.

This site is under construction

We have planning permission.

Housing standards plummet in Oxford rented sector

A survey commissioned by Oxford City Council has revealed that a fifth of the 30,500 private rented sectors constitute “a serious housing hazard”.

The private rented sector in Oxford represents close to fifty percent of homes in the city. Every Oxford ward has over 20 percent of housing in the private rented sector, a council press release reckoned. The council has launched a public consultation. Continue reading

Mill Street origins of Little Brock are explored

Genealogists in Mill Street have become interested in Little Brock’s antecedents and have dug up quite a lot of information.

Little Brock, the badger cub, emerged as an adventurous child of the Giant Albino Badger of Mill Street just three or so weeks ago. So far, we have discovered that Brock Little was a famous surfer and stuntman (https://www.liveabout.com/the-death-of-brock-little-4009907) who died in 2016 and did stunts for Die Hard 4.0 and Transformers.

Brooke Little is an actress (https://www.imdb.com/name/nm6056936/bio?ref_=nm_ov_bio_sm). Big George Brock died on April 10th this year and played with Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters, and others (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_George_Brock). He was a boxer and fought Sonny Liston, beating him.

You can hear lots of his music on YouTube, for example:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4xjcFc8o6EE&list=OLAK5uy_nRwUEn0u9xzp0IjGoi_qULT44UnSdpPmI

Oxford City Council flouts nationwide laws

A cadre of councillors in the World Heritage city of Oxford has decided that blind and disabled people will have to suffer a dictat from planners and endure an egregious development that will leave people in the cold.

Two nationwide organisations for the disabled pointed out that “developments” at Gibbs Crescent took no notice of statutory laws, fire access laws, and common humanity, including United Nations, British, and European Commission  laws. Continue reading
